Hi, everyone. Here’s an idea that has been brewing in the back of my mind. In light of the XPN Sunday Pow Wow, I’d like to create an audio section for XP Nuggets where we would highlight fellow bloggers and individuals that would like to be “interviewed”. I envision it as something very informal. A meet and greet of who you are as a person and highlighting you and your blog. I hope to […]
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.

Hey Journal! Wow. I can’t put into words the amount of fun I’ve had taking a pen to paper and tapping away at the keyboard. There’s so much you can do with writing. So much opportunity and experiences have been laid out in front of me. Write a blog? Write a comic? Write a book? Write a script? Write a song? Write a Video Skit? If you apply your self with […]
As long as you keep one foot in the real world while the other foot’s in a fairy tale, that fairy tale is going to seem kind of attainable.
“If you doubted your fears and not your dreams, What could you accomplish?”
I love mnemonics. They are catchy, quick and can snap you back into a winning mindset. Here’s one that recently came to mind. PUSH. Persist Until Shit Happens. Think of the expression “Get out there and Make Shit Happen”. Excuse the language but I tried “Special”. It didn’t seem to fit. Neither did “something”. It lacks the umph. The only word that expresses the meaning I intend is the word […]
Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.
” If you have a dream in this world, do not let anything stop you from trying to reach it. There is no guarantee you will succeed, but you will already have failed if you don’t even try.”
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Riddle. He was kind enough take time out of his day to share his insight and expertise of the comic industry. A big thank you to Mr. Riddle for dropping a few Nuggets of wisdom! Check out his FB page here!
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love individuality. When I see someone strive to be their own person, I can’t help but smile that entire day. It’s magical. I absolutely love seeing people choose to be different. My go-to, generic advice has always been: “work on yourself”. Sometimes my friends will come to me with problems and my answer to them almost always is […]
“Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement, and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.”
Hello, readers! Let’s follow up on the topic of dreams with a practical guide. Now, It’s one thing to picture a dream with your mind’s eye and say that’s what I want, but how do we go about bringing it to life? How do we turn a make-believe story into a reality that we can touch with our own hands and see with our own eyes? What steps do we […]
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.
Hello, Friends! We are another day closer to our goals and to our dreams.
( Unless you happen to be living in a dream xD )
We are primed to dream very early on in life. The first time was probably when you were asked: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Do you remember? It may have been something along the lines of “An Astronaut!” ,”A Firefighter!” or even “Just like you Dad!”. However, you answered I’m sure the thought brought a wide grin to your face. Why? The answer is your […]
Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.

Light yourself on fire with passion and people will come from miles to watch you burn.
We all have one but no one else can hear it. Yep, you got it. I’m talking about that little voice in your head. Sometimes it can do more harm than good. Nobody else can hear the voice whisper “Oh, I can’t do that” or “I’m not good enough”. Do you remember the first time you heard it? How about the first time you hesitated to do something? When […]
